- Question: What is the main reason why a boycott might not be successful?
- The company is able to spend more money lobbying the government.
- Many consumers won't stay away from a company that offers the lowest prices.
- Companies will only change their ways if their sales and profits are affected.
- The news media often refuses to cover boycotts for fear of driving away advertisers.
The correct answer is: Many consumers won't stay away from a company that offers the lowest prices. Unless enough consumers share the goals of the boycotters strongly enough to participate, the boycott probably won't hurt the company's profits enough to have an impact.
